Less than half of adolescents in Ohio go to regular well care visits with a physician, which means they are missing important opportunities for preventative care, screenings and immunizations. The Ohio QI2U – MenB program aims to get adolescents in the door for a quality well visit, along with educating and increasing the rate of the meningococcal B vaccination.
The program also includes a new, innovative program model called practice coaching in which a nationally-trained coach conducts all education, assists with data and quality improvement strategies, and personalizes all program elements to the needs of the practice.
The Ohio QI2U – MenB program is expected to as impact many lives in its first wave from January 2017 – June 2018:
- 20 physician practices
- 20,000 teens
Opportunities for Involvement:
- Adolescent Immunizations MOC Part II Self-Assessment
- HPV Vaccine Opportunities and Challenges MOC Part II Self-Assessment
- Fast VAX Facts Website
- Parent Resource Page
